Russell Turns 6 on June 4

Russell was very excited when he woke up in the morning. He enjoiyed looking at his cake and could not wait to get the backhoe and dump truck washed to haul popcorn.
He was laughing too much to blow out the candles.

Because he has 2 front teeth missing, it was hard for him to get a stream of air happening to blow the candles out.

Brian Palmer and Steven relaxing and topping up with cake and ice cream.

On his birthday, I take Russell to town by himself and he gets to pick where to go out to eat and putz around and look at things that we never get a chance to do. Chloe was with Grandma for the day so Russell had a great day being an only child. Chloe can't wait for her birthday in July. May, June and July are busy with many birthdays and I am tired out by the end.
Russell asked for Thomas things to add to his collection. He got the Knappford Station, Useful Engine Shed, Rocky, gift cards, money, a Thomas sticker book of over 700 stickers, and a shirt. Now some of you will be more familiar with Thomas lingo!! He had a great birthday and enjoys being 6 and says he is ready to start grade 1 in the fall.

I like the picture of him trying to blow out his candles. He was making me laugh, and I almost didn't get that picture taken in time! I can't believe he'll be 7 years old next June. Wow. Time sure does fly. The cake was really good.

Great looking cake!! Very creative! Happy belated birthday Russell! Sounds like he had a blast - wish I could say the same for Steve in his picture! haha :) I completely understand the Thomas lingo - we have a little boy that eats/sleeps/breaths Thomas too!
